Sole Source Procurements Under the Uniform Guidance
Every grantee knows that a “sole source” procurement is a high-risk event when using federal funds. Yet, the Uniform Guidance does not offer much clarity on when sole source procurements are permissible. Despite listing potential justifications of “only available from a single source,” “public emergencies,” and more, the regulations do not go on to explain what might qualify as fitting within these general categories, exposing grantees to the peril of strict after-the-fact review of any noncompetitive procurement. In this webinar, FTLF attorneys Joseph P. Loman and Scott S. Sheffler bring years of experience in both federal government contracts and federal grants to an in-depth discussion of this often vexing area of the law.
- CEOs/ Directors
- Fiscal Staff
- Compliance Directors
- Procurement Personnel
- Other grants management staff
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand the scope of sole source restrictions
- Further clarify in policies and procedures what may or may not constitute a valid sole source procurement strategy
- Craft effective sole source justifications
